Gnocchi are fast and easy to cook for dinner. Recently, I saw a gnocchi recipe in the December 2013 Food Network magazine and made it along with one of my long-time favorite gnocchi recipes. The Food Network recipe isn’t posted on its site yet, but all it is is baking a package of gnocchi with olive oil, kale and parmesan cheese (I used pecorino romano). It’s really good.
My favorite gnocchi recipe is gnocchi with gorgonzola sauce.
Gnocchi With Gorgonzola Sauce
1 package gnocchi
1 tablespoon butter
2 cups half and half or whipping cream with 1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons gorgonzola
Melt the butter in a pot. Add the half and half. Let it come to a boil. Lower. Add gorgonzola. Mix and heat through until it becomes a creamy sauce. Add to cooked gnocchi. (Gnocchi cook fast, so you can start boiling the water for them while you make the sauce.)
